No, we're in desperate need of better puck possession.

Agreed. One of Sharp, Kane, Hossa would have to go back to Van for Gillis to consider.

He'a not going to take a combo like Emery, Frolik, and Montador (3 players Hawks would give up for nothing).

wouldn't do it from canucks standpoint. seeing luongo 4 times a year isn't good. making chicago an actual cup contender isn't good. and hossa might not be the same after that hit.

Harry Potter books were suggested.

Someone suggested "Luongo and the City on Fire" or something.

Agreed. But I don't see the Hawks sending any of those players to the Canucks. Thank you for being a reasonable person!

Agree about the brutality of Philadelphia fans, disagree about Lu being a marginal upgrade on Bryz and about Lu's contract being an albatross, and wondering if you went temporarily insane suggesting that Schenn is better than Ballard?

You know it seems that whenever we stop trying to argue over who has the advantage in here and start talking about players to trade we get pretty close but that doesn't seem to happen very often.
I can completely see Burke going to the see with those two, and there is even a chance it could work, I just think there is a way bigger chance it backfires, and if it does chances for ramification are huge.

I have to disagree. Lui is a huge upgrade, hell Andre Racicot might be an upgrade. And as for contracts I would also say Lui's is better.

Lu's contract is a terrible albatross, I don't see how anyone can try and debate that. He's a fine keeper, but he comes with a cap hit of 5 million until he's 43 or so years old. That's an albatross. He's better than Bryz, but not that much better when you factor in that bloody contract.

As for Schenn and Ballard, I'm really not sure how exactly Ballard is better. He doesn't hit more, he doesn't block more, he barely racks up more points, and his GvA TkA ratio is just about as bad as Schenn's, last season anyhow. Personally, I think was ruining Schenn, and I think we're all going to see a very different player in Philly. Just my opinion, though.

EDIT - Fair disclousre, I did not realize that bryzgalov's contract was similarly brutal. That's a real toss up, to tell you the truth.

Maybe, but also a good goaltender. I'm under the general impression that they are not going far with Crawford between the pipes. If the objective is simply to make the playoffs, then he'll get the job done, but not much more. The Hawks don't specifically need Luongo, and I don't think they'll even try for him, but they do need a better goalie if they have designs on another Cup.

I still think there is a deal that can be worked out that does work for both sides. Altho I think it is becoming less and less likely to happen in the real world.
Rumors keep going around that Gillis has Gardiner in his asking price and imo that just isn't gonna happen.

You do understand that he isnt going to play until he is 43 right?
He plays till 40 at the latest.

At this point I feel more on the outside then ever. Last I heard there was traction according to Lebrun, but as far as I know no team was mentioned with who there was traction. Then we get all this info from completely unreliable sources. I just don't know what to think on if a real world deal happens.

I agree there could be. Guess we will just have to wait and see.
